Natalie Portman's Cannes Dress: Love It or Hate It?

Natalie Portman always takes the edge off of her daring design choices with her innate elegance, and her wardrobe of Chanel and Lanvin at Cannes has been nothing short of gorgeous. But when she hit the red carpet for the AmFAR benefit at the legendary film festival tonight, we had to do a double take over her cut-out white Givenchy Haute Couture dress! There’s something so Jetsons-meets-Swan Lake about the sculptural creation that we just wouldn’t expect from Portman. We love that there is a young star who is always willing to take a red carpet risk (and can pull it off!), but we want to know what you think! Tell us: What do you think of Natalie’s dress? Do you love it or hate it?

Okey, evidently the fashion rule of not wearing black shoes to white dress slipped her mind, and with any detail in black that would have been forgiven, but no belt, no hair flower (thank god that would have been over the top) in black. So shoes were a mistake.
However the dress is like a mixture of a layerd cake and a cancan skirt. Dashing, daring and albeit different. Nonetheless I like the dress.

I LOVE the dress! It’s so different but still gorgeous! It looks great on her, too!

Love the dress! The shoes should have been a cream, ivory, or nude shade, black just doesn’t look good with that type of fancy dress. TOTAL CLASH of COLOR :)


I don’t think its that bad. I wouldn’t wear it but I’ve seen alot worse than that.

Love it. To me it’s fun and def haute couture. There’s no way it could be pulled off in MY world, but in Cannes, she rocks it.

LOVE IT! and what’s with all the comments on the black shoes? Don’t these hillbillies know that black and white is a classic in ANY combination…Geez!

Yelena on
